    Compensation Case Study

    By Rena Somersan

    As our workforces grow and change, and the market for talent heats up, HR Leaders and practitioners guide some of the heaviest financial decisions within the organization—employee pay. Pay, to an individual, has meaning beyond the paycheck because it can be perceived as a measure of worth and one's value to an organization. We'll cover the trends and steps HR Leaders and other Managers can take to set up and manage a solid compensation and retention program from start to finish.  

    Rena Somersan is a Managing Principal with Newport Group's Compensation Consulting Services. Rena earned her Bachelor's degree from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and her MBA from Koach University in Istanbul Turkey. She has over twenty years of consulting and industry experience assisting clients in executing their strategic human resources and compensation initiatives. Her focus has been in the areas of workforce and executive compensation, performance management, leadership development, talent motivation and retention
